Abstract

This review delves into tomato processing into different products using tomato paste as a base. It discussed tomato production in Nigeria and the glut that’s a regular phenomenon during tomato seasons. Again, it talks about the wastages that occur because of the glut and also because of the inherent nature of tomato which predisposes it to perish after harvest when left in its natural state. Also, it discusses the necessary steps to undertake in production of processed tomato, advantages and disadvantages of processed tomato, and gave in-depth step by step processing procedures for the production of different tomato products. Furthermore, it dwelled on issues relating to packaging of finished tomato products, packaging development consideration, types of packaging, production capacity, marketing of tomato products, requirements for setting up a small scale processing centre, analysis of investment in tomato paste processing, hygiene in tomato processing, and product registration. Conclusively, it maintained that establishing tomato processing centres by investors would help create wealth and employment and in the long run help nip tomato wastages in Nigeria in the bud.
